It's the problem the Trump administration can't shake off - a steady trickle of leaks from within the White House.
Though senior intelligence officials are worried about leaks from within the Trump administration, White House Press Secretary Sean Sphincter has assured the public that "we're golden" when it comes to protecting sensitive and potentially compromising information, "the President is a whizz at getting things out of people."
President Trump reiterated this point of view in a televised interview with MSNBC reporter Hannah Natursekt, when he assured that "When I find whatever yellow-faced loser leaked this, it'll be 'you're fired' from me. We keep it in."
But the flow may be hard to stop: Mr. Trump has continued to put pressure on sensitive areas of the government, dampening morale and causing civil servants to look for other places to go.
"I think a lot of people are just going to want to make some noise," said one senior Trump official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, "I really don't see where their aim is here."
"It leaves a bad taste in a lot of people's mouths," said Gelbwasser Aufboden, professor of political science at Université Pluies-d'Or-les-Pins "There's not really any great way to clean up this mess, but this offensive approach is not helping. It's a slippery floor to something more dramatic."
This was not the view taken on by the one former official did speak to us without condition of anonymity - Danaë Natursekt, ex-head of stream protection at the EPA said in a statement that "I don't think he really wants to stop the flow, if we're being realistic. He just wants to make a mess over everything Obama has touched."
"This is not the first time the FSB [Russia's internal security service] has gotten their hands dirty with leaks from within the White House." said Evan McMullin, former CIA operations officer, who also added that "[it] would definitely be something to worry about. Who else might come from all this?"
